PSG vs Strasbourg
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 14th September 2019
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
Champions PSG will kick off early on Saturday compared to the rest of Ligue 1 as they are taking part in the Champions League which starts the next week.
PSG will be big odds on favourites to win this game and whilst the club will be missing Kylian Mbappe there is big news, Neymar is back and should start the game. PSG will need him after injuries to both Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.
This is a game which has had some tensions in the build-up because of some so called ultra-supporters and there will be extra police on board when this kicks off. PSG are top of the league so there is no change there, though with just 4 games played they are only top by goal difference.
As for Strasbourg they started the season in poor form and have no wins yet. They are in 17th place but have only actually lost 1 game and have drawn the others. In their last match they did well to come back against Monaco and finished the match drawing 2-2.
PSG vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
When the two teams last met in Paris the game finished 2-2.

There is a 70% chance to see both teams to score.
PSG vs Strasbourg: Prediction
As is pretty much normal PSG are basically unbackable at home in Ligue 1. They are odds of 1/5 to win, which offers no value at all. However, the half time betting is much better and we will back PSG to get off to a flying start especially with the presence of Neymar back in the team, the club will really be ready to give their all.
At the same we don’t expect Strasbourg to just lie back and they will have their genuine chances too and history says they can get beat but still play well against PSG and we will also back both teams to score. For small stakes let’s also back Neymar to grab the first goal.
PSG vs Strasbourg: Bet Tips:
PSG to winning at half time at 1.57 (4/7)
Both teams to score 2.00 (1/1)
First goal-scorer: Neymar (PSG) at 3.75 (11/4).
